LinuxFromScratch.  e.g http://www.au.linuxfromscratch.org

but i am not sure if what the original poster described is possible (using debian
packages on an LFS system)

Well .... he says he's going to do LFS with Debian source code ... doesn't this mean he'll end up with Debian (from source)? ...and of course apt-get and dpkg should work.?

Or, is there some special magic needed?

I think you just do it and deal with the error messages. YMMV.
